Yes! Looks like its going to be CRC's until the Jaco fronts come in again. We will be carrying BSR wgt tires as well...but they are on backorder for a couple more weeks.

Thumbs up A "Horse by Any Other Name".....................

I am thinking hard on the subject and coming to the realization that feeling the boost is not the same as using the boost. There are other realizations, but they do not constitute polite discourse.
So, does this in anyway explain the decission, (cough, by the "Competition Commitee") to "Ban Dynamic Timing" in the Pan Car Classes?

Points of fact:

-- The pan car classes at H30 have done nothing but grow this season, despite doing away with dynamic timing.

-- I held my own at the TZGP (granted, in the C-main) running no timing...in fact, using the same gearing and motor that I run at H30. The two guys I've debated "no timing" with the most (you and Pops) finished behind me.

-- The possibility for mod 1/12 at H30 is real as the class grows.


At any rate, preference is preference, there's no accounting for that. But I think we've shown so far (at the local level) that 'no timing' hasn't hurt the pan car classes one lick. Considering the limited amount of testing/tuning we get at H30, I think removing one level of complication is a good thing. Just my 2 pesos.

AND ME TOO!!! but at least I made the B main.. hung over... lol

down here in Salem we have been running 10.5 stock spec, no timing, no Voodoo, whatever... and its fun of course. it does make you a more consistent driver BUT.. we are just goofing around. with the size of our track some extra timing will make an improvement in times guaranteed.

(Iím a true believer in VooDoo) and Iím not debating

I asked before is the hanger not on live rc?

Well then why do you keep "beating the horse". It seems to me that thsese 2 classes and the sedan class as well keep growing. I'm not 100 percent sure but the turnout over last year already looks a lot better. Granted its still early in the season.

We don't have the interwebz at H30. It's the Bermuda triangle for wireless.

you of course do realize that your taking credit for beating someone in c main that didn't race.
and you can't prove a positive, no telling how the class would have been affected if the timing was kept.

I don't care what nobody says...as soon as we find out what the classes are for Natl's (especially the 1/12th classes...can't you tell I'm partial), I say we start running them here at the Hangar ASAP. I would LOVE to see the majority of us 'show up' at Nationals next year

LET'S MAKE IT HAPPEN!!!!!

I am much happier without timing. Stock sedan is more fun without dynamic timing to deal with. Much more straight forward, throw some gearing at it and go play. I can focus on the car setup more now than figuring out why my timing ramp keeps kicking in the middle of the track and boosting me too hot into the chicane.

Normally I would agree but is anything you learn at the Hanger going to be applicable at TZ? Grip level, traction compound, tire choices, track size all different. Track time on its own will be the most help and how fast you can get up to speed on a new layout.

I do agree with the highlighted above but in general respectfully disagree buddy. All of its applicable. Most of us (especially of us @ the Hangar) has been to TZ, so we know what to expect (tighten those cars up!). I feel anytime I can get a feel for the motor used, gearing, boost, timing, profiles, etc., I'm alot more comfortable in a somewhat similar environment. Do I dare predict that all of us that went to the TZII GP this year will attend the 2011 Roar Natl's @ TZ as well. We all learned quite a bit and pretty much know what to do with our cars when we get there. IMHO, I don't feel the 2 tracks are 'drastically' different.
But then again, maybe this is a discussion best suited for Timezone.
End discussion....
